Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Oh! And Lupin the 3rd: Castle of Cagliostro! It's his first directorial debut and it's old school fun! And it has David Hayter as the lead role (credited as Sean Barker). And I agree with Stans about Nausicca and Mononoke being similar in tone. While I prefer Mononoke, Nausicaa is probably more fami...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

How's Moving Castle is one of my favorites and it seems to able to grab people of all ages. If they liked Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service would be a good one to do next.

Re: Let's have a thread about the virus, then. We might as well.

I think being stuck at home is really affecting me more than I realise. Whilst I'm trying very hard (and doing it mostly successfully I might add) at not losing my cool at home I seem to have turned in to an absolute monster online. I'm arguing with people left right and centre on Facebook, just in...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

We got the free, 7-day trial of Apple TV and used it to watch the first season of Mythic Quest. I liked it, even if I could see the cracks. I think it's a show that could benefit from a second season to become great. I'm usually forgiving of a sitcom's first season. There were plenty of jokes that l...

Re: Games Completed 2020

I finished the main campaign in Sleeping Dogs. Despite my occasional open world fatigue, the game was fun throughout. All the little things are done well. I think the whole undercover cop story gets a bit too silly with all the things our hero does in between, but it's unique for sure. I'm gonna tac...

The Ps3! Noooo! Did you manage to salvage your game saves? It's just the disc drive that's broke, but I've got a few games on disc that can't be bought digitally I was hoping to get round to :( I really just wanted to play Max Payne 3 again which is why I got it out. Its a shame the PS3 games never...

Re: Games Completed 2020

So, I recently went back through DOOM 2016 on Ultra-Violence. But, I still had the itch so I went back again this week and tackled Nightmare mode. It's just so much fun. An all-time favorite at this point.

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

So, not new, but the wife and I just rewatched the Hobbit/Lord of the Rings films. I got both trilogies on bluray for Christmas and it felt like a good time to do it. The extended editions of the Hobbit films are sort of a mixed bag. The first is a lateral move, I don't think it makes anything bette...

Sorry KSub! We're bi-weekly and we had a J.M. DeMettias interview scheduled first!

Not sure what everyone’s situation is, but here’s a link to Amazon’s job portal. They’re hiring a lot of work-from-home jobs. A few in the UK, as well. https://www.amazon.jobs/en/location/virtual-locations?offset=30&result_limit=10&sort=relevant&job_type=Full-Time&distanceType=Mi&radius=24km&latitud...

Re: 413: Florence

I love the visual metaphors for relationships in Florence. The speech bubbles needing less pieces as the relationships strengthens and more common ground is found, the speech bubble's pieces getting sharper during fights, the need to decide what to keep and get rid of as the couple moves in together...

Re: Gaming firsts /most influential games

This could go on for a while so I'll try to limit myself... Super Mario Bros. First video game I ever played as kid. I doubt I could read by the time I had that NES controller in my hand. Age of Empires Cemented my love for RTS and sim/god games. I play Civ and all that because of the first AoE game...

Glad to hear it all went OK. Time to de-stress at least a tiny bit! You all sorted for WiFi and stuff? Doesn't sound so important, but I'd feel lost without it! Internet comes tomorrow (hopefully!)
